Ability to tag people in post images

Would be awesome if there's a way for us to tag people/images while scheduling each posts.

    We have now shipped the ability to add People Tags (and Geo Tagging) to IG posts!

    One restriction is they have to be scheduled as "auto-publish", as this will only work going through the new Instagram API.  Also - we can't query the IG API for people's names, so we unfortunately cannot do autocomplete on names

    Hope this feature helps!

    Beyond Instagram, is tagging available on other platforms like Facebook or Twitter? I have attempted to tag accounts by putting the @ prior to the establishment but haven't had anything autopopulate.

    I am having the same problem. Neither in the iOS app, nor on the web app, I can add a geo tag or tag a person. Is there any documentation on this? Thanks

    I just downloaded the app but don’t see this feature on mobile or desktop. How do we tag people/geo tag auto-publish posts?

    I see that your team mentioned moving forward with this in mid-may. It's now early July. What's the schedule looking like?

    How does "Preview" accomplish tagging users? Perhaps you could implement a similar work around?

    This is now possible due to changes in the IG API - so we are working on it!

    There may be some confusion here though - you can definitely @mention users in captions and comments via Later - you just cannot tag them in photos.

    Again - we would love to add people tags to posts, but we just simple cannot.  Instagram doesn't allow it.  If you can get Instagram to change their API that would be awesome!

    We do support and help engagement in other ways though - we help businesses engage with followers and other IG users through Search & Repost, and comments.  In addition we enable activation of followers via Linkin.bio, and we are working on other great features too!

    If you have any suggestions for other ways to help engagement, please do let us know.

    Tagging is a huge part of social media. So LATER is beneficial for scheduling a post but not for engagement?

    unfortunately, Instagram doesn't let us send people tags across to their app :-(
